In soft blue, the cherry blossoms on this scarf look as though they are set against the sky. Evoking spring, these pretty blooms are a flirty, floaty nod to fresh spring days, while the scarf is a versatile accessory and memento of Washington D.C.
Spring in Washington celebrates the cherry trees and their beautiful pink and white flowers that bloom in late March. Every year, Cherry Blossom Festival performers put on a colorful show right in front of the National Archives steps. The majority of the trees are located near the Tidal Basin, where they are most popularly viewed. The Japanese cherry trees were a gift from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo City to the city of Washington on March 27, 1912. The National Archives holds many records related to the United States' relationship with Japan.
